Ingredient Substitutions

Some of the recipes listed here contain grains, wheat, corn or soy. Some pets are allergic or sensitive to these ingredients, or are on a grain free diet. My own dogs and cats generally eat grain-free diets, however I do sometimes make these recipes for them, and I feel ok about feeding them as it is a very occasional treat.

If your dog or cat is allergic to one of the grains in a recipe or is on a grain-free diet, you may be able to substitute an ingredient to make the recipe acceptable for your pet. Some options for substitutions for dogs who can't eat wheat or white flour are brown rice, barley, oat, quinoa, amaranth or rye flours.

If your dog is on a grain-free diet you may be able to substitute grain-based flours with grain-free potato flour, tapioca, or chick pea flour.

To substitute for flour, you may need to alter the amount being used. The following sites provide information on how and how much to substitute:
